Veleno nets nice shootout goal in Hlinka loss

Joe Veleno and Team Canada dropped their first game of the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup on Monday in Slovakia, falling 4-3 in a shootout to Russia.

Veleno, who is Canada's captain, had an assist in the game scored a sweet goal in the shootout.
The Saint John Sea Dogs forward was listed on the team's second line with Gabriel Fortier and Luka Burzan.

The full game can be watched here:

This is Veleno's second Hlinka tournament. He now has five assists in five career games.

Canada will look to rebound from this loss tomorrow against Finland. Game time is 10:30 a.m. AST and the game will presumably be streamed on YouTube again. On Wednesday, Canada will play Slovakia in their final round robin match.
